The Secret Habits on Internet Users #Infographic #Internet

Mobile and the internet’s ever-increasing role in our lives is drawing out some behaviors that are… well… quite strange. A recent survey of 1000 respondents intended to explore these strange and, until now, unspoken mobile and internet habits. The results were revealing.

For instance, did you know that it takes the average person 4 attempts to take a selfie that they’ll share on social media? Meanwhile, have you ever felt a little paranoid that someone might be reading your phone over your shoulder on the bus. Well, it turns out you’re not paranoid. 28% of people admit to reading another person’s phone over their shoulder on public transport, with 25 to 34-year-olds the most likely culprits.

Other insights in the study include the prevalence of “second screening”, texting the wrong person, clearing internet history and what we’d all be doing if the internet didn’t exist at all. To know more, look at the statistics below.

Ireland: An Aging Country #Infographic #Demography

With the current global awareness of the pension crisis, we decided to explore how Ireland fares out when it comes to its citizen’s attitude toward personal pensions. Tapping into the Central Statistics Office’s vast database of information from the recent Census conducted in Ireland, we were able to identify some amazing statistics that back up the global concern around pensions. With an aging population, citizens of Ireland need to focus on starting their pensions at a younger age. By doing so provides a pensioner with a more fruitful and satisfying retirement.

Current statistics show that 1 in 5 Irish citizens will be over 65 by 2046. With this, the government will not be able to carry this burden, hence the requirement to protect your future and start a pension. It is also expected that with the aging population our pensions will also begin at a later age and in 2045 it may be 70-year old’s instead of the current 68 for retirement.

It is clear from this infographic that the sooner you act and invest in a pension the better positioned you will be when it comes to drawing your pension. Zurich Life wants to raise the awareness that this is not just something of concern in the Republic of Ireland but across the globe.
